Being a tribute to the river Alva, which gives its name to the sub-region where the vineyard with more than 80 years is located, the Alva Magna Red wine comes from a blend of native grapes from the region of Dão. With a 6 months fermentation and reposed in french oak barrels, this wine provides a fresh and an elegant aroma of citric and wood notes. A well embodied wine, dry, ample and persistent, with a great balance between fruit and wood, with a nice freshness, creaminess and minerality. In its entirety, an elegant agglomerate with a great longevity.
